Statement on the swift passage of government tax reform measures

In past Congresses, I focused on the delivery of social services like education and health.

Now, I have the opportunity to continue this advocacy from a finance perspective.

As chair of the Senate Ways and Means Committee, I look forward to working with our counterparts in the House of Representatives and our economic managers led by the Finance Department in exploring ways to fund social services for our people. I have started consultations with the DOF and soon will conduct hearings, open to all sectors. Our goal is to ensure steady, sustainable development to uplift the lives of the Filipino families.
